Very little flash and the parts fit very well on this kit. I had thought about trying to fit a V8 engine but the car is just too small.


The little 4-banger engine is very well detailed with all the parts fitting extremely well.


Interior panels are very well engraved and cry out to be detailed.


There's no chrome on the body. I made the mistake of masking all the window frames and painting them with black chrome when all that really needs to be done is paint the edge of the glass. The body is in beautiful shape right out of the box. I used HOK marine blue to get a pretty close to factory color.

This really cool kit to work on and Revell needs to be commended for their craftsmanship. Thank you also to IPMS for allowing me to review this kit.
